I relied on tripadvisor to find a good hotel close to Irvine where I had a medical procedure scheduled. The Bay Shores Peninsula was rated #1 and close enough for me. My husband and I felt welcomed from the time we walked in the door! Warren greeted us with fresh baked cookies and several good recommendations for dinner within walking distance. The room is small but very comfortable bed. The DVD was important as I needed to continue an exercise program I was using. They also have a ton of movies to choose from if you want. Breakfast was ample with fresh coffee, juice, milk croissants, cereal , hard boiled eggs, bagels, and a sausage egg sandwich. Highly recommend without reservation!
